Mrs. Becky Zimmermann

Term:

Since Apr 2012

Profile:

Prior to becoming the CEO of the NSCD in June of 2012, Becky was the President of Design Workshop, Inc. an international land planning and urban design firm. Becky has served as a NSCD volunteer and member of the Board of Trustees for over a decade. As the new leader of the organization, she brings experience in operations, marketing, finance and the resort industry.

Leadership Statement:

This letter came across my desk today:"I write this on behalf of my daughter, who is unable to speak, much less write a thank you note. She would say thank you for the scholarship that made it possible in a year where her parents could not have afforded it. Her story has just begun on skis, and it is thanks to a very devoted and caring staff who, in spite of my suggestion that we terminate the scholarship, insisted that they were not going to give up on her - that if she could walk, they felt surely she could ski.They put my fears to rest... and encouraged me to bring her up once more, because the process of teaching ANYONE to ski is just that - a process. I am not sure how to convey how meaningful it will be to participate as a family in something as wonderful as skiing down a mountain together... We wanted so much for my daughter to experience the joy of skiing, and we are so grateful to have found NSCD, who professionally but personally made that possible for her. Our thanks is not nearly adequate, but my daughter's smile after a day skiing is."I am reminded that every effort by every person, no matter how small, can have a world of impact. Please help us continue our efforts to offer life-changing opportunities to individuals with disabilities and their families. In these difficult economic times, know that every donation counts and every dollar contributed helps build a foundation of lifelong exploration and adventure for our participants.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

March 2013)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

The NSCD's impact has been to open doors to outdoor recreation for individuals with disabilities and their families. This past year, we served 3800+ youth and adults participating in 23,500 lessons across 20 sports and outdoor activities. For many of our participants, we serve as their first introduction to the possibilities of physical activities and sports and we are happy to report that the large majority continue on to further participation in therapeutic recreation. Through specifically adpated programs, teaching techniques and equipment, we guide our participants to a greater understanding of their own physical abilities while simultaneously creating awareness among the general public and changing perceptions.
